Farm and Forest Summer Camp
June-July 2024

Registration is now open!
Everyone Outside has teamed with the awesome folks at Fire Ring Farm to bring you a summer camp that offers kids ages 5-12 a chance to follow their passions, explore and connect with the natural world and learn about sustainable farming and land use in small groups under the supervision of caring nature mentors. Our camper to mentor ratio is 6:1 or better to ensure a nurturing, supportive environment.
What do we do all day?
Each day we spend time exploring the forest at Palmer-Taylor Preserve with our nature mentors and learning through play with hands-on nature connection games and activities. We also spend time each day engaging in hands-on agricultural activities to learn about farming healthy food with our farm team at Fire Ring Farm.
